If you could choose an HR job opportunity at a tech startup with $120K or a an International bank with $90K but a long term career prospects which would you choose? I'm struggling with loving being able to make a difference in a start up environment but also want lateral development (and long term growth potential) in a large organization. Willing to take the pay decrease (I'm at $130K now) but confused which direction to go in. Would love your take on things. TIA!

Any Accenture folks in Corp Functions? Curious about salary expectations from analyst to specialist.
If you spend anytime on this bowl it’s pretty easy to feel like you are behind in your career. Always someone with less YOE making more than you. I was hanging out with some high school and college friends who coaxed my salary out of me (I don’t like talking money with friends - we all took different careers and we have different salaries; but I don’t want money to drive us a part) And they gave me a good reminder that we (consultants) live in a bubble and are very fortunate.
Rant about accounting major... Why would someone study accounting in the first place? 6 years almost to get all your CPA credits and your CPA license, starting salary of 65-70k, no work life balance, disrespectful hypocrite people...I honestly want to be born again... Please tell me there is light at the end of the tunnel (I mean I want to reach financial freedom, have my own house and be healthy at some point in my life)...EY PwC KPMG BDO
Salary at age 25?
Last year, My girlfriend was making 80k while I was making 200k so I took her out to dinners and took care of the groceries etc. Basically made sure it’s an equitable relationship. She got a new job this year and is now making 210k (more than me) but still expects me to pay for all the dinners and groceries. I’ve already talked to her about this but just resulted in argument. Is there any coming back from this situation to make this equitable relationship or is break up the only option here?
Are the PWC rumors of salary increases true? How much and which service lines? Any other firms getting this?

I referred a friend who got hired, and now he keeps dropping hints about wanting an expensive bday gift bc I got a 2K bonus for hiring him. How the heck do I respond to that?
Did anyone look at the median salary of Desi household in US vs overall median. It is 2X and I think it is under reported! ( can not be prouder!)
Any BCG 🐠 have thoughts on how BCG Federal compares to the rest of the firm in terms of type of work, comp, work/life balance, or any other pertinent factors?
In your opinion what is a better life - being really rich like making $500k a year or more but no serious relationship. Or having a partner and family but making below $200k?
Anyone who's on the client engineering/technology side of IBM, trying to find some info: 1. What are the internal position levels/hierarchy? I'm coming from a consulting firm that follows the A -> C -> SC -> M model. 2. What do promotion life cycles look like with Client Engineering? Is it a rigid or more flexible time line? 3. "Incentive compensation bonuses to be paid quarterly based on 100% completion of expectations." How much of this can I expect to actually receive if I'm doing well?

Literally everyone from the Workday practice is leaving. Maybe this will give IBM a hint that they need to change something
Looks like a massive Exodus happened in Deloitte? Trying to staff a project and there is literally no one to staff with (at least Salesforce practice) and we are having to reach out to contractors. Is this a result of layoffs that happened last year and folks are purely unhappy with pay (not considering project pressure as that can vary/be subjective)? For folks who have been here for a long time, is this a common occurrence or is it especially bad this time around?
Sorry for the political post...it's time folks. We need to move gun control forward. I personally will now publicly shame those that believe the rules don't need to change after Orlando this weekend.
Good happy hours in NYC?
I’m an analyst, and another analyst on my team has a more challenging time on client calls. How do I coach/mentor them to be more concise, less buzzwords, etc.? Or is this something to bring up to leadership? I genuinely want to help, but I don’t want to seem like I’m overstepping any boundaries
Does anyone ever worry about the amount radiation exposure we get in planes every week? Could this job literally be killing us?
What is a trend that you can’t get behind?
Do you all feel guilty about flying/ubering so much in the midst of the climate change crisis? I think we should...How do you balance personal ethics about this with work needs?

For those of you who travel with two laptops, do TSA agents usually make you take one out your bag and scan it separately? I've noticed it a few times but not sure what the actual policy is?
Absolutely despise people who ask if their friend/spouse/coworker etc can switch seats with me. Suck it up and either book the seats in advance/pay for it or just be alone for a few hours.
